Can you believe this is our 200th post? I can hardly believe it myself. It seems as if the time has flown by since we began our adoption journey.
When we began our blog it was so that our extended family and close friends could follow along and feel close to our journey. I feel like we accomplished that and so much more. We have gained so many friends along this journey. Friends who helped us through many a rough day and night.
Analise being home has been the greatest joy and adventure. It is more than I ever imagined it to be. Today I was watching a movie and the line was, "You taught me that you can't be a perfect parent but that there are a million ways to be a great one." We think that one way to be a great parent is to protect your child from whatever you see fit. Which leads us to our announcement.
We will be ending this blog. We have ran the race to God's best gift and have accomplished with this blog what we set out to do. But have no fear, we will be opening a new blog about our lives. That blog will be private.
Here's the deal. It's a crazy world out there and you have to protect those around you. We have always been careful about not posting to much information but we don't want to do that anymore. We want to be able to share things with family & friends about our lives.
I regret to say that if you have never commented or contacted us personally you probably will not be invited to the blog. Unless, someone I know personally can confirm that you are who say you are.
I know this may seem stringent but this is what we think is best for our family. WE hope you all understand and support this decision.
FAMILY-Do not stress out about the private thing. I will help you get set up so you can still see the blog. Just email me and I will help you!!!
If you are interested in our private blog please email us at the following address:
Family, replace the word at with @ and the word dot with . If you can't figure it out - CALL ME!!
It will probably be about a week before we end the blog. We will keep posting here until then.
